Castle Point Caravan Site: From the back

General

  • Within walking distance of three sandy beaches
  • Spectacular scenery on the Rockcliffe coastline
  • Laundry room, lockable bike shed, play area and barbecue area

Here’s an interesting factoid with which to flummox your friends: it wasn’t just famed seaside resorts like Brighton and Bournemouth where well-to-do Victorian types hung out for their hols. Oh no. They sallied north as well, to the gorgeous coastline of Rockcliffe in Dumfries and Galloway for its warm climate, wealth of walks and unsullied scenery. Jolly sensible of them, of course and something of which even fierce social critic Charles Dickens might have approved...

21st-century sorts seeking the same high standards should sally forth to Rockcliffe’s Castle Point Caravan Site, set a short stroll from the sea and within easy ambling distance of three sandy beaches – and with some of the best views in the area. Which for Scotland is saying quite a lot…

On site, there's a laundry room with washing machines and dryers, plus washing-up areas, a lockable bike shed, a drying room for wet clothes, a play area for the kids and a barbecue area with seating. For provisions, a well-stocked food shop is about a mile away at Colvend and a couple of small supermarkets are around six miles away.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

For hire caravans there must be at least one person aged 21 or over.

    Recycling could be better organised with signs for Glass, Card, Plastic, etc.

From the manager...

Hi, Thanks for the graet and helpful review. The recycling is done by the company that takes the skips away. They go through the rubbish and sort it. We will try to make this more transparent.

  • Liked: 

    Great Site and quiet location.
    would recommend booking well in advance as we only booked Sat - Fri and asked if we could book till the Sunday but unfortunately the pitch was already pre-booked.
    hopefully get another booking later on before Autumn
    Showers/ Toilets and washing facilities were immaculate and a credit to the owners Scott and Lorraine who cleaned the facilities and could not do enough to make our visit as pleasurable as possible
    A Hidden Gem !!!

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike but an observation the access road from the main road into the site is single track and quite a few potholes especially after the last private house and meeting any caravan/motorhome on this road would be a problem especially if reversing was required.
    again i must stress NOT a dislike !!

    What a hidden gem! The wardens (Scott & Lorraine) were very welcoming upon arrival and throughout our stay. The shower/toilet facilities were excellent and kept exceptionally clean. We took our two scottie dogs with us and they thoroughly enjoyed all the beautiful walks that we went on. Evenings were spent enjoying the spectacular views and soaking up the quiet surroundings.
    We shall certainly be returning.

Local attractions

Walking and wildlife are the order of the day here: clamber along the cliffs from Castle Point to Rockcliffe and along the Jubilee Path up the Muckle Knowe; you can also walk along the causeway at low tide from Kippford to Rough Island and its bird sanctuary or take to the hills at Screel, Bengairn and beyond.

For something even more strenuous than Scottish hillwalking, follow the signposted trail from Rockcliffe village and climb the Motte of Mark for some stunning views over the Urr estuary and beyond to the Lake District and the Isle of Man.

As for wildlife, the area is full of species to stare at, including butterflies, bluebells and summer swallows, with Dumfries and Galloway an all-round nature haven: try the Galloway Red Kite Trail, stamping around with the stags at the Galloway Forest Park, looking for small critters in the beach rockpools or seeing the seabirds from the RSPB centre at the Mull of Galloway.

If you prefer two wheels rather than two feet, Castle Point is close to the 7stanes, the seven mountain biking trails across the south of Scotland, and there are numerous cycle trails nearby.

Other active options in the area include pony trekking, fishing, sailing and tennis – Kippford is a well-known sailing centre and there are watersports, archery and other activities at Galloway Activity Centre and the Laggan Outdoor Centre. Several nine- and 18-hole golf courses within reach too, with the closest at Colvend Golf Club on the Solway Coast.
